When you need to relax, recharge or boost your energy, music therapy can help.
It can also be a great tool to boost your confidence and mental health, says music therapist Sue Pinto.
“Music therapy is very different from physical therapy,” she says.
“It’s more about relaxation, it’s more like yoga than it is about physical therapy.”
The best thing about music therapy is that it’s so relaxing.
“Dr Pinto says most people are able to use it in the way that suits them best.”
You can listen to it at your desk, you can listen it on the phone, or even on the couch or in your car,” she explains.”
So it’s a really wonderful way to do things.
“It can be a little tricky to get the right music therapy session started, so Dr Pinto suggests people start by listening to music from their own collection.”
That way, when you get to your session, you know that you’re going to be able to go and do a session of music therapy as well as having a conversation about what you’ve just listened to,” she adds.”
And that will give you the confidence to start talking about it.
“Music therapy sessions are usually 30 minutes long, but Dr Ponto says that can vary.”
If you’ve got a good group of friends and you can get together and listen to the music that you’ve been listening to in the past week, that’s usually enough,” she advises.”
But if you’ve only got two or three people who have listened to the same music for a while, it can be difficult.
You can find a music therapist by visiting a music therapy centre or going to the local library, Dr Pinons website says.”
They’re able to listen and learn, but they’re also able to offer a great sense of relaxation and a great therapeutic experience,” Dr Pinda says.

If you’re looking for more help for relaxation, music may be a good option to consider.
“If you want to do some music therapy, it doesn’t really matter what kind of music you’re doing, you need some sort of therapy,” Dr Rennie says.
“It can range from relaxation to music.”
“When you need a good quality music therapy that you can actually relax to, you might want to talk to a therapist,” she added.
